COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. It’s like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
April 1, 2011 - draught at Blue Monk. Slightly hazy amber-gold with a decent lasting creamy/frothy off-white head. A little up-front metal in the aroma, definite citrus bitterness and light resin - some alcohol, not much - the metal detracts some ... Taste is really pungent - catnip and spruce (no metal at all), funky grapefruit in the finish, some alcohol. Average body, decent carbonation, a really long pungent palate grabbing finish, leaves a dry grapefruit pith coating - work on that aroma and this is really, really good.

gripweed57 (608) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2012
22 ounce bottle. Hazy amber gold color topped by a rocky off-white head. Piney hop nose. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor balanced by a subtle grapefruit hoppiness. Very smooth and nicely balanced, somewhat light bodied for an IPA. Finish is bitter and lingers nicely.

lamas (1347) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 26, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a big beige head that leaves a little lace behind. Grapefruits, oranges, zesty citrus rinds, a moderate amount of pine sap, and a touch of caramel in the aroma. Goes down relatively medium-bodied and just a tad sticky. Some caramel and a little breadiness upfront taste-wise. A biscuity middle. Plenty of drying grapefruits, oranges, and citrus rinds at the end. A solid IPA.

Really great IPA with significant hop character with such a low alcohol percentage.

jredmond (5259) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle shared with Andrew and Chris. Pours an amber body with lacing. Aroma is fresh, dank hop, light pine, and light malt. Mouthfeel is nice, refreshing and sessionable with notes of pine, dank musk, light malt base and grapefruit.

A really nice IPA. Hoppy with good balance. A bit of a bitter finish, but very satisfying.

ccex (908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2012
22 oz bottle pours a cloudy honey color with persistent white head and good lacing. Aroma is full of piney and citrus hops with biscuits and a hint of almonds. Body is medium with average carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet at first, with a long dry finish (with a bit of metallic taste at the end, which is the only negative). A very good IPA I’m glad to have tried

idedek (157) - USA - JUL 29, 2012
A good pale color with a good piney and citrus aroma with hits of grassy aromas. a medium body with a mix of light sweet and bitterness. The finish is clean and dry with a piney taste as well as a bit of bread and a tiny bit of tin.

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Whole Foods, Vienna 22oz ($6): Pours a light amber color with a thick and creamy head. Aroma is fine: pine and citrus hops. Something is off in the taste though. I feel as though this is not exactly the best balanced IPA out there. It seems almost watery. The hops are there, but they have nothing to really hold on to. Basically, there is not enough body and not enough balance even though the flavours themselves are ok.
